“We at Advanced Energy Economy extend our congratulations to Senator Ron Wyden as he becomes chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance,” said Malcolm Woolf, Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Affairs for AEE. “Senator Wyden has been a forward-looking thinker and an active supporter of advanced energy solutions throughout his career. We look forward to working with him and the committee in moving toward an energy tax structure that takes a targeted, technology-neutral approach to provide stability and certainty for the business community for the long term, and restores recently expired advanced energy tax credits for business stability and certainty in the short term.

 

“We would also like to congratulate Senator Mary Landrieu, as she becomes the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources,” added Woolf. “We look forward to working with Senator Landrieu and the committee on efforts to pursue a balanced energy agenda this Congress.”
